We believe that organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are in the best position to provide long-term support for survivors of conflicts like these. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future challenges.
The projects listed below are led by vetted GlobalGiving partners responding to this disaster. You can donate directly to a specific project or to GlobalGiving’s Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund and we'll allocate it to where it's needed most. GlobalGiving will post reports about how your donation has been put to use.
War will have a devastating impact for children and families across Eastern Europe economically, practically and emotionally. Over 2,500 vulnerable children will be given hope, opportunity and security with initiatives to prevent family breakdown, support the abandonment, transform lives of those affected by disability and offer firm foundations for those severely impacted by war and living in precarious conditions.
The war in Ukraine continues. Children with cancer undergoing chemotherapy and heavy treatment in hospitals are in double horror and stress. They are separated from their families. We don't know how long the medicines reserves will last. We ask you to help Ukrainian children with cancer win their battle during this cruel, unjust war.
The Tabletochki Charity Foundation purchases medications and medical supplies for child hospitals throughout Ukraine. With your help, we purchase the most up-to-date and effective medications, which are often very expensive. Your donations are used for anti-fungal and anti-tumour therapy, supportive care, and immunotherapy. By donating, you will regularly see updates on the children whose lives you impact. We call our survivors 'winners' - and with your donation, it's your victory, too.
Childhood cancer is not a death sentence. In Ukraine 1000 kids are diagnosed with cancer every year. 7000 kids are hospitalized throughout a year including new patients, patients who continue treatment and who have a recurrence. Their chances for survival depend on the availability of medication and facilities as well as on their emotional condition. The project of Zaporuka will provide these kids with treatment (medicines and equipment) and relief (psychological and entertainment activities).
This project guarantees free accommodation for 6 families who have a child affected by cancer at the Center Dacha every day. With the construction of a new Center 15 families will have a guaranteed free accommodation during cancer treatment. There are no centers like this in Ukraine. Cancer therapy may take months and families with ill children need a safe place to live during this period so they could support their children and take care of them in a proper way.
Bringing love, protection and care for up to 30 babies, abandoned by their parents or made orphans through conflict, in Kamiankse's (Ukraine) Children's Hospital and Baby Home (orphanage). Also, preventing abandonment of babies and young children in Transnistria, Moldova through family support.
If diagnosed with a rare disease, most people can expect a genetic origin, an expensive life-long treatment, and a disability. 70% of rare diseases start in childhood. Some of them cause severe breathing difficulties and these patients begin to live each day with fear of suffocating. This project aims to raise funds for purchasing the specific medical equipment - oxygen concentrators, inhalers, aspirators- for 20 patients so they can have access to the everyday respiratory in-home care they need
Today bravery has gained a new meaning. In facing war, Ukrainians have become the personification of bravery. Ukrainian children have been especially brave, as even in the darkest moments, they remain strong and courageous, with a huge belief in Ukraine's victory. But even the bravest ones need help. Please make a donation now to provide emergency aid for Ukrainian children.
On Thursday 24th February, Russia declared war on Ukraine. Thousands of people are now Internally Displaced Persons. Millions of people are fleeing contact zones. The war is crippling Ukraine's economy. UNICEF estimates that 7.5 million children are at risk. Families of children with disabilities - usually single mothers - suffer most. Accessing medical care will be near impossible. We help IDP and contact-zone families of children with disabilities access essential medical care.
Russia has invaded Ukraine. This is the biggest war attack since the Second World War. There is huge panic in Ukraine. The Pallottine fathers, especially in Kyiv, Odesa, Zhytomyr, and Lviv shelter families. Food, water, hygiene products are needed, but not only. The emergency need for the people to survive are power generators and oil-powered equipment. As more and more buildings are destroyed, the strong tools are needed and thermal imaging cameras to look for people uder the rubble.
Kidsave is evacuating orphans and families from Ukrainian war zones. Staff, who'd been mentoring and finding families for orphans, built a network of vehicles and drivers that, as of July 16 had had gotten 21,723 people, including 522 orphans, to safety, and delivered 340+ tons of humanitarian aid to those unable to leave. Kidsave continues to deliver desperately needed food, medicine, protective gear, water, generators and more, daily, with each trip in to rescue people. The needs are ongoing.
The project will support at least 1,500 Ukrainian refugees. We plan to provide Ukrainian refugees with emergency food and sanitation kits and daily necessities (such as refrigerators and microwave ovens) for evacuation centers. Refugees are struggling day by day. With your support, we can help refugees in need. Thank you for your support and interest.
The project focuses to teach 1000 youth in five regions of Ukraine and help them develop skills for peace mediation and conflicts resolution. This will help youth refugees from war area in Ukraine to find their place in communities. Also we are holding joint service project which is help to unite youth from different school. As new beginning we holding youth congress at International Peace Day for large of people.
The project focuses on psychological help for 100 000 Ukrainians. In the situation of military aggression by the Russian Federation and under the pressure of the humanitarian catastrophe taking place in Ukraine, therapists, psychodynamic counselors, crisis and clinic psychologists, and University professors joined efforts to help fellow citizens in this difficult time of war.
With the acceleration of conflict in Ukraine, the number of people in humanitarian need has increased dramatically, with an estimated 12 million people in need of urgent support, including around 2.1 million children. As the conflict escalates, so do the needs of children and families. UNICEF's priority is to urgently scale up emergency preparedness and response across the country and wider region in order to meet the growing needs of children and families, including those on the move.
The terrible war is ongoing in Ukraine. Russian invaders bomb cities, hospitals, houses, killing civilians without remorse. Ukrainian kids with cancer and other serious diagnoses are more vulnerable than most in such a situation. They need medicines, medical supplies, food to survive in Ukraine and transportation when evacuation is possible.
Another month has passed since Russia started the war in Ukraine. Over 3.5 million people from Ukraine found refuge in Poland. The first wave of aid is over, but help is still needed. We need your help to keep going with our activities for refugees. We are asking you for the long-term HELP, especially for REGULAR (MONTHLY) DONATIONS, which are crucial to us!
As the Japanese NGO working in conflict/disaster-affected areas for world peace since 2001, we can't ignore the victims of the crisis in Ukraine due to Russia's invasion. At the same time, we can't forget the victims of the crisis in other conflict-affected areas, such as DR Congo. This project provides humanitarian relief and long-term support to both affected people by the crisis in Ukraine and the "Forgotten War" in DRC since 1998. We need your help and stand for world peace.
The situation in Ukraine continues to be critical. Millions of people abandoned their home, heading to West countries and many took the pets with them. Refugees pets need help but for dogs left behind in Ukraine, the nightmare continues! ROLDA is just 8km from the border with Ukraine (Reni - Giurgiulesti) Your support will enable us to pay for the transport for rescue missions as well as veterinary and shelter care provided to dogs saved from Ukraine.
War crimes are being committed in Ukraine as hospitals come under attack to displace citizens. In only a few weeks, more than thirty hospitals have been affected by shelling, and a maternity hospital was targeted in an attack. BKC has heard the calls for aid from the doctors and nurses working tirelessly to ensure children get necessary healthcare. We aim to get essentials to hospitals in the short term and give funding for purchasing essential medical equipment in the long term.
All children in Ukraine are in grave danger now. Any war is a war against children, and we have fears that more innocent young lives will be lost if the fighting does not stop immediately. Your donation will help us support kids regionally in Ukraine, as well as in surrounding countries like Poland and Romania where families are fleeing for safety.
Peace Winds Japan is dispatching staff to Poland to help refugees who are fleeing Ukraine following Russia's invasion. German media estimates up to 1 million Ukrainians will seek refuge in EU nations, such as Poland, which is already readying 1 million accommodations. This project is being carried out in anticipation of the humanitarian impact on Ukrainians, which UNHCR High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi, has said will be "devastating." Your kind support is warmly appreciated.
While millions of Ukrainians have escaped to safety, many more have not. As troops advance, disabled children and low-income families are trapped with no means to escape. For families with disabled children and low-income families, the burden has become intense. Some families living in besieged areas are facing food and essentials shortages. Others face starvation as supplies become scarce.
Russia has invaded Ukraine. This war will affect millions. As the war destroys Ukraine, the most vulnerable people will suffer. About 100,000 children live in about 650 residential institutions nationwide. Many of these are children who have physical and learning disabilities. Many have no primary carers. Many are unlikely to have a chance to flee and seek refuge elsewhere as the war approaches. These children living in specialized institutions should not be the forgotten victims of this war.
The Ukrainian people are facing another humanitarian crisis and they urgently need our support. This war is a defeat for humanity! It threatens a humanitarian catastrophe of unimaginable proportions. A war that the people of Ukraine did not cause and that no one in the country wished for. According to UNHCR, more than 3,2 million people (1,5 million children) have fled Ukraine. In the biggest cities and in the small villages there is a lack of food products, medicines and other hygiene products.
Due to military aggression by the Russian Federation, which started 24th of February, a large number of internally displaced persons are arriving to Odessa. People left their homes for staying alive. For now, more then 3 millions people left their cities. Our project help people to find a shelter, food, clothes and all basic needs for surviving in this hard days. Also we help to equip bomb shelters in our city. All Ukranians are rallied and together we have a big power! We need your help!
Since 2018, WONDER Foundation has worked with locally-led Polish organisations to support Ukrainian migrant women in Poland. Now more than ever, our partners are ready to build on this expertise, and draw on their deep connections with both the Polish and Ukrainian communities. They are meeting the urgent needs of the women and families fleeing war in Ukraine and have the resources, knowledge and teams in place to do so.
Ukrainian children with disabilities face higher risks from war. The Russian declaration of war means the pressure on single mothers will increase. We purchase work equipment or pay educational course fees for moms of disabled children to ensure that they have the basic skills and supplies to work or run a business. Despite the duration of war, people will need the services these women train in, such as hairdressing. Their income eases their reliance on welfare and charity.
Since Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24th, 2022, over 1 million Ukrainians have fled, and 100,000 have been internally displaced. Over 750,000 have arrived at the Polish border, fleeing with limited possessions amid a frigid winter. These families require immediate financial and material assistance. This project will provide immediate relief to the families in need.
Tens of thousands of pets have already been reported missing in Ukraine during the wartime. We need to ensure that all pets can easily be returned to their loving families in this time, when a pet may be all that people have left. We have already provided 250,000+ tags and registrations for people and pets in Ukraine. We estimate that there are 200,000 more pets that need this service, so we need to raise $120,000 in order to ensure all pets are covered. Thanks for donating & helping pets!
The Dzherelo Centre has been operating in Lviv for over 28 years, taking care of children and young people with severe physical and intellectual disabilities. All children with severe diagnoses need constant care, need hygiene products such as diapers, as well as specific drugs they need to take daily. Because of the ongoing war in Ukraine, it became harder for the families of the children to sustain themselves. Your donations are used to buy the everyday necessities for the impaired children.
Sorrow has come to our house. War has come to our country. People are losing their homes, jobs, health, lives. Ukraine is a peaceful country that had to face the attack of a large and militarized aggressor. Our enemy has no mercy. We have rallied and refugee and disadvantaged families in Odessa now receive humanitarian assistance, shelter and opportunity to flee Ukraine. But there are more and more such families and we critically need your support. We do everything in our power. Do what you can.
This project will supply gasoline of the buses of the Dzherelo Children's Rehabilitation Centre, which provides educational and rehabilitation services to children and young people with disabilities. Children and youth need a transportation program to get to Centre every day. Support for this project will help Dzherelo maintain its transportation system, improve its quality of services, and, in turn, improve the quality of life of children and young people with disabilities in Ukraine.
From SOS Children's Villages Spain we have opened an emergency fund to send all possible resources to our colleagues of SOS Children's Villages Ukraine and support them in all the work they are developing there due to the current conflict.

The aim of this program is to prevent family separation during displacement and to provide shelter, food, hygiene products and psychological support to families and children in need.
The war in Ukraine is a major problem for adults and children receiving or needing palliative care in Ukraine. An estimated 500,000 adults and children in Ukraine are dying or have palliative care needs in Ukraine annually.

As of last week (March 7th), an international organization started providing bulk food for us to pack and distribute to families who are either staying in Moldova for a while, or who are tranistioning to the West. We are able to process about 100 boxes per day, but to scale that up we need to finish our conference room. We also want to prepare two classrooms and a small playground, since 1/2 of refugees are children, and keeping them busy allows parents to work.
As the violence in Ukraine continues, one million people have sought safety in neighboring countries. ActionAid is working alongside our partners to ensure that urgent needs of refugees are met, and that marginalized communities are being protected.
The therapeutic benefits of working with wool are very well known and documented. At the Zywiec Development Foundation we have launched a new programme to assist with supporting and providing relief to refugees from the Ukrainian War. This is a "Wool for Ukraine" program which uses the therapeutic benefits of working with wool to offset the effects of the distress and growing spread of Post Traumatic Stress Disorders caused by this conflict.
Conflict between armed groups and Ukrainian forces in eastern Ukraine has affected millions of people since fighting began there in April 2014. Now the escalating conflict will mean that many more people will require humanitarian assistance. International Medical Corps and our Ukraine team have taken immediate measures to ensure the safety of staff in the country and are preparing to deploy mobile medical teams; mental health and psychosocial support services; and COVID-19 prevention services.
4M refugees have already fled Ukraine to seek refuge in the neighbouring countries. Families are separated, since it's often women and children who can leave the country. Being forced to leave part of their family behind and having little information on what awaits them beyond the border puts them in a distressing situation. TSF provides them relief through free internet connectivity which helps them remain in contact with their relatives and look for essential information for their future.
The drastic deterioration in the humanitarian situation in Ukraine has led thousands to seek safety along the country's western borders. Thousands of vulnerable Ukrainians are now taking refuge in neighboring Moldova, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Slovakia. IsraAID will distribute essential relief items like personal hygiene kits and blankets - critical amid COVID-19 and harsh winter weather - and provide psychosocial support to help affected populations deal with potential long-term trauma.
A baby leg prosthesis that will allow a child to walk costs $60,000. Today you can make sure that you do not have to buy it. The brutal, bloody war and the violation of all the Geneva Conventions by the Russian army are strewing our lands with mines, shells and bodies of children who are no longer destined to grow up. Right now it is clear that the demining of Ukraine will take from 5 to 10 years, and during that time innocent people will die or become disabled every day. We can significantly re
This project will help set up pop-up clinics throughout the UK and the EU to provide mental health services to Ukrainians fleeing war in their home-country. We will train 30 practitioners from all over the United Kingdom and Europe and are already setting up clinics along bordering countries with Ukraine to provide trauma-informed care to migrants and refugees coming in.
This project will fund seed access and education programs to establish home and community resiliency gardens in Poland. By working with local community groups, we will support vegetable production and community building for Ukrainian refugees and the families and communities that have graciously brought them into their home.

With this project IBO Italia aims to support Internally Displaced People and Refugees, providing them with essential goods and psychological support.
For more than six years, the charity fund Let's Help has taken care of about 16,000 lonely needy elderly people. Among them there are many who cannot move independently and need assistance. Every month, we deliver food, medicine, personal hygiene items to them, buy wheelchairs and other necessary things. Our volunteers and social workers of the institutions where they stay help them in their everyday life. We need to keep working on the problem and act quickly to save these people's lives.
At Celia and Pepe School we want to welcome two new kids. They are coming from Ukraine together with their mothers and running away from the horror. They have no place and no school to go to.

With this project, ASAM is aiming at meeting the urgent needs of the individuals to prevent further suffering and decreasing the risks that they may encounter. To do that, ASAM will provide emergency assistance.
Russia's attack on Ukraine will lead to major civilian harm and massive displacement. The conflict has the potential to be the largest military action in Europe since WWII. U.S. intelligence projects up to 50,000 people could be killed or wounded. Further violence will devastate Ukraine's already weakened infrastructure. The country's health system, is fragile, and its economy has declined drastically. Food and fuel shortages are likely to be acute, public services rendered nonfunctioning.
Ukrainians are mentally and emotionally traumatized by the Russian aggression in their country. Bosnian citizens are particularly able to understand the struggles of Ukrainians because of their experience with war in the 1990s, and the team at Wings of Hope is well-equipped to provide services to victims, both adults and children, from Ukraine who need vital mental health care to help with the trauma of their difficult experiences but are unable to pay.
As FEBA we are supporting our members in Ukraine and in the neighboring countries who are helping the people of Ukraine.

Millions of Ukrainians are in the cross hairs of the world's most devastating weapons. In Ukraine, thousands of cluster bombs, artillery shells, and rockets litter the streets that can detonate at any moment. Families are left sheltering in basement and cellars. The HALO Trust has been operating in Ukraine since 2016. We have over 400 staff on the ground in Ukraine working to protect civilians from cluster bombs, landmines, and other deadly explosives, but we need your help.
We decided to give concrete helps to the Ukrainian refuges since the beginning of the war. Firstly, we drove to the borders with trucks and coaches packed with humanitarian aids and taking then back women with children, wanting to escape from their destroyed lands. We are now taking care of them in Italy with an economic contribution and activities. Secondly, we built a village in Cernivci, a safe place close to Romania: we are hosting 1000 people. Another one will be built soon.

Independent journalists in Ukraine have risked their lives to uncover human rights abuses and corruption - and to protect public interest - in the country. Responding to the invasion of Ukraine, Internews is giving emergency funds to protect Ukrainian journalists and help them provide trust-worthy, life-saving information to communities in conflict areas.
Innocent Ukrainians are dying and suffering every day from Russia's barbaric actions - they are ruthlessly shelling our homes, kindergartens, hospitals and even maternity wards. Russian forces have no pity for children, pregnant women or the elderly. But despite the fear of death, Ukrainians continue to help each other. Doctors and medical staff are forced to live in their workplace. In addition to the wounded, there are also non-transportable patients in medical institutions.
Our community center has been in the front line of sheltering and supporting women and children fleeing the war in Ukraine.In collaboration with the local Ukrainian embassy we have sheltered 170 women and children in our center and planning to shelter 130 more very soon.

This need will continue to grow in the coming weeks and months till peace is fully restored in the country.
Record numbers of refugees have been documented in 2022, the war in Ukraine has contributed greatly to the statistics. Since the full-scale russian invasion more than 8 million have been forced to flee their homes and move to more peaceful regions. 100 000 people have nowhere to come back to. Russians destroyed their homes with missiles, houses left standing were looted and deliberately damaged. The figures are quite understated, Ukraine will be able to calculate the damage when the war is over.
"Daruj Dobro" is currently helping people in Kharkiv and other affected areas in Ukraine by providing all the necessary humanitarian aid. Since the beginning of the war, we have delivered over 500 tons of aid. People were left alone, without food and basic necessities. Kids have lost their parents, wives have lost their husbands, and mothers have lost their children. We can make a change and give those people hope and happiness.
Some health conditions are chronic and require long term treatments and multiple regular visits to the hospital. And some life-threatening conditions require immediate attention and specialized intervention. Cancer chemotherapy, dialysis, blood transfusions in thalassemia coronary artery disease are some examples. When Russia invaded Ukraine more than four months ago, hundreds of Ukrainians who needed such treatments lost access to care overnight.
Over 2.8 million conflict-affected people have fled Ukraine including 127,000 Third Country Nationals (TCNs) and crossed into neighboring countries to date. It's still winter in Ukraine, and those who fled their homes do not have much more than the clothes on their backs. Residents who have not been able to leave their homes in Ukraine have limited access to essential services, cash, and humanitarian items. The situation is getting critical by the hour.
Around the world, 82.4 million individuals, mostly women and children, have been forced to be displaced.

As the situation within Ukraine continues to unfold, we remain flexible in our approach in neighboring countries.
In the midst of war in Ukraine, the need to support true journalism and disseminate information to the local and global public is of vital importance. We are raising funds to directly support the only local TV channel currently running in Kyiv and to support local media network families while their loved ones remain in Kyiv broadcasting true stories first-hand.
This madness will stop, eventually, and after that, we'll clean up, put the pieces back together and move on. Over the last 15 years, we've managed multiple construction crews here in Moldova, building the Eco-village complex, Katalyst Kitchens, and repairing houses and apartments for many friends and family. We have a lot of experience, and contacts. But what if you intersect that with our professional backgrounds in non-formal education? Let us introduce the Katalyst Vocational School.
Project will help injured warriors, civilians and children to heal 4 times faster with wound VAC therapy. Millions of Ukrainians have been thrust into the midst of military and humanitarian disaster, with the number of injured and murdered rising by the day.

What would make us and our families leave our home, work, and travel to an unknown country at high cost and risk? War, violence, discrimination, poverty are pushing millions to move into the unknown. The recent war in Ukraine has shown us how quickly things can deteriorate for millions of people. We are helping refugees and asylum seekers around us irrespective of their religion, gender and nationality with immediate solutions to food insecurity, accommodation and other essential needs.
Gift of the Givers relief intervention in Ukraine is focused on providing emergency relief items to orphans, elderly, families and individuals.

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.
We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.
They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
Give the gift of stability in a time of instability. Set up an automatic, monthly gift now and get matched at 100%—because the COVID-19 pandemic has hurt us all, and it will take all of us to overcome it. Terms and conditions apply.
